Published

on

Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) through an eight-man committee yesterday commenced investigations into the alleged cases of voting by under aged persons during the last local government elections held in Kano state recently. The investigative committee, chaired by Engineer  Abubakar Nahuce, was set up by the national chairman of INEC, Professor Mahmud Yakubu, charging it with the mandate to unravel, if the voters register used during the conduct of  the Kano local government election was in tandem with the names of registered voters on INEC’s record.

He explained that, the aim of the electoral commission is not to pass judgment on the conduct of the LG polls, rather to ascertain, if the voters registered used is that, which was obtained from INEC. The committee, which visited the headquarters of Kano Independent Electoral Commission, KANSIEC located on Sabo Bakin Zuwo road requested the state electoral body to furnish it, with  the record of the  voters registration that was used to conduct the LG elections, in the following areas,  Shahuci area, Kano Municipal Council registration area 21. The august body further requested KANSIEC to  avail it,  with the voters register used to conduct the poll, in Gama registration area 2, Nassarawa Local Government registration area 31, and Gezawa registration area 3.
